We’ve been waiting patiently for it to arrive and now it’s finally here, we thought we’d share some of the exciting things we’ve got planned for the incredible year that will be 2018.
It’s a big year for our city – celebrating 10 years since we were crowned European Capital of Culture – which means we’re about to embark upon 365 days of unforgettable moments to put us on the map of success stories that the Capital of Culture crown brings. It’s a great opportunity for you, your delegates and your business to share in this unbelievable year with us, while planning for the future after 2018 too.
From conventions and events, to award ceremonies and international trade missions – we’ve outlined some of the highlights that 2018 will bring; with a mention of who we can’t wait to welcome to our city too (much more to come!)
We’ll find out…
